In a First Friday opening, Marina Gallery presents a new body of work by Barbara Smith Gioia entitled Flatbed Archeology, which refers to their structure, method of construction and content. These new collage paintings expand on her exploration into ‘states of perception and being.’
The layering of collage papers, which come directly from her silkscreen and monotype prints both past and present, creates a kind of history within each work. The juxtaposition of opposing patterns can be perceived simultaneously as discordant and harmonious, personal and universal.
The public is invited to the opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on First Friday Oct. 4. The exhibit runs through Oct. 27. Marina Gallery is located at 153 Main St., Cold Spring. Gallery hours are Friday through Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. For more information visit themarinagallery.com.
